Taken January 25, in a hutong in the very center of Beijing. Digital, as is.
Tomorrow, January 26th, is Chinese New Year (Spring Festival). Traditionally most celebrating activities take place in the night before New Year. Then, many people shoot off firecrackers everywhere in the city. It’s the night’s spectacular. The very loud sound of firecrackers fills the city. And fireworks light up the night sky. This celebration always lasts from evening till small hours.
However this year the sound is not so intensive, probably because of economic reason.
